I saw this on YouTube but have never seen it prior. Keep in mind, I know LITTLE of this game. So all players get dealt 4 cards. You mix-n-match which ever two pair you want!! Yes, you still have to bet on both sets. All other same rules apply. Hit, stay, split etc. Anyone ever play this before?

Yes, in South Africa it's called Blackjack Switch.

You basically get dealt two hands of two cards each and you either stay on them or switch one card from one hand with a card from the other hand.

Blackjack Switch may appear to give the player an advantage and at times it works but remember its two hands you are playing with. I've played it a few times and have watched others play as well. What most players do is to bet bigger values on doubles and they do pop up a lot. You need a healthy bankroll though.

Blackjack is a very popular game and there are a number of variations to the game. you only have thirteen different card values and your goal is to get to 21 or as close as you can. The dealer (house) has more strict rules as they must have a minimum of 17 to stop drawing cards. Players do not have to draw any cards and can stick on 12 hoping the dealer will bust.
Much like roulette the value of the next card is unknown even if you count cards. The auto shuffling machines make card counting very difficult. Another factor is the number of decks in play, most casinos use 4 or 6 decks.

If you have some GOOD advice based on your experience at the Blackjack table, please share.

My excel program can compute all average hous edges. There is a large difference in playing BJ on internet and in the B&M  casino. See my video on YouTube with my strategy for internet For B&M the basic strategy is recommended. A HE lower than 2% is a Myth.

"There is a large difference in playing BJ on internet and in the B&M  casino." >> Ummm no s**t. In my world, taking a piss at home vs. at a B&M is different. My world is the CASINO, nothing less.

I really dont. I play like twice a year, just to have fun. I know little of the game. As a matter of fact, if other veteran BJ want to give out some advice, I'm all ears. I want to LEARN from the people that know more than me !!!

Here is one that of course will get people thinking (its what I do). If you are playing BJ with a few others at the table........it is incorrect to get mad at another player for not playing the way YOU want them to play (basic strategy). Lets say some guy was new to the game and knew little of it. Over the long run, he (they) will NOT effect your overall results with taking a hit OR should not of taken a hit.

I started to learn more about this game, but some things are not clear for me, maybe someone could help me.

The ace could b e count as 11 or 1, we know, the palyer can  choise. But can the dealer too? Example the dealer first card is 6, than ace. Its for he counting as 17 or 7? Or He get A, then 4, then again A. These cards how to count? 11+4+11 OR 11+4+1 OR THIS IS DEALER DECISION?

The dealer can use his Aces just as a player.
The only difference is if the dealer has an A and 6 he is forced to stop (they call it soft 17).
Therefore he can't use it as 7 and take another card. He has to stop at the soft 17.

Speaking of that........I have a friend that plays a certain way. He NEVER takes a hit regardless of his two cards and regardless of the dealers up card. He does not play to win, he plays for the dealer to lose OR bust.

In the sequence of events the player will always bust first (go over 21). When a player busts he is no longer part of that specific game so if the dealer busts after the fact only players with cards on the table win.
